Texas Tech celebrates after a 75-69 win against Gonzaga in the West Regional final in the NCAA Tournament Saturday, March 30, 2019, in Anaheim, Calif.

Robert Morris basketball coach Andy Toole joins us again as our bracketologist to preview the Final Four this weekend.

We talk about the two stunners who made it all the way to the semi-finals: Texas Tech and Auburn.

Give Toole credit. He liked Texas Tech from the start of the tournament. He tells us why we shouldn’t be surprised they advanced from the West.

Listening to Toole, there’s a lot more meat on the bone to that dramatic Virginia Elite Eight win over Purdue than we even thought.

Also, how did Michigan State beat Duke? It looked like the Blue Devils were going to be able to survive anything.

I have Virginia beating Michigan State in the final. Find out who Andy takes!

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
